around policy uncertainty. there are many who believe that the uncertain environment that is prevalent in the nation's capital is adding to some of those concerns. we certainly hear from some of -- small-business customers and others who do not know what their tax rates are going to be or what areas the government may cut back on spending. it is a difficult position for people to wait in. even if they are seen profitability and growth in their business, they are trying to get by with what they haven't been rather than commit to -- with what a house rather than commit to new investments. >> you know how much of a world of participation rate is going to play in unemployment going forward? we have seen a sort of stabilization. will it hit the bottom? and have all of the we're factors played out and now it is just demographics? >> one dindane -- one thing that surprised everybody and one of the reasons we have had a lot of progress on the unemployment rate is past years we have not seen a lot of people re-enter the labour force. participation rates have been pretty much trending down. ther

to have buzz-in doors, that infrastructure is part of creating safe secure learning environments. and then being able to really look at the personnel that you have in your school that helps support students. from training for teachers in the classroom to the other adults who are in the classroom because there are so many adults there besides the classrooms the classroom teachers the school bus drivers, the janitors, you know, the shooting at the high school in california, it was a teacher and a campus supervisor who really talked down that student and prevented lots of further violence. that kind of training is critically important. i mean, look at in this time of crisis when states have slashed budgets and taken so many resources out of schools, some of those resources are school counsellors, school psychologists, social workers, and now, where you might have had a school counselor per school, maybe dealing with two or 300, some of the ratios now for school psychologists, for example, is one to 1,000. you can't possibly provide the kind of support

that the polls are shifting? >> i think the polls are shifting and the environment may be better, but the intensity of this issue, how strongly do people feel about it, is still on the side of the gun owner. so, what you have to do, the president and other also have legislation and regulations, we have to build a climate -- a political climate in this country where it's safer for politicians to support this legislation. and that is not an easy thing to do. but i think it's important to try. >> and i just want to outline some of the recent polls. they fascinated me. i don't know if i'm naive to this they seem to have significantly shifted on a number of different levels. when it comes to sat s ts t s s with gun laws, a "usa today" gallup poll suggested that 30% of those were dissatisfied and wanted stricter gun control. 43% were satisfied. 5% wanted less strict guns. when you break it down into specifics, that's what the president is doing today, the nationwide ban on semiautomatic handguns, 51% support that. and a nationwide ban on high capacity ammunition clips, that number is e
're in a completely different environment, and obama did pretty well working from the outside in on the fiscal cliff thing, and now the sense is he is nott going to win on the assault bans. he might do better on the magazines. he is quite likely to get some sort of victory in terms of the background checks. why not run this up the hill, get a yes or no vote and build in political capital for future fights. >> future fights on unrelated issues or -- >> on this issue, but also building up sort of this whole reagan-esque argument. the richard newstat book about this, about the power of the presidency, it was kind of bill clinton's bible. obama seems to be moving forwards that away from the deal cutting. >> maria theresa, glen is talking long game, but in terms of the short game, the playbook seems to be one that he has used a lot in the last couple of months/year, i'll say, which is vault over congress and take it to the people and make them move however incrementally. the question is do we think is that can happen? can he have that kind of win on gun control 1234. >> he did exactly what he should have
't ignore the interplay between biology and environment. >> what about the fact that we talk about the irish or the native american indians. is it a lack of tolerance? is there a term for it? >> no, no, no. there's a genetic factor and an environmental factor. but the bottom line is we know how to deal with this. prevention, prevention, prevention. nine out of ten addicts started when they were teenagers. if the brain is still developing and you hijack it, you're permanently -- >> you don't like these laws legalizing marijuana? >> no, i don't. i think we need the public health community to weigh in here. so we need to be mindful, and not jump into this. >> like joe camel and that kind of stuff. >> exactly. liquor stores. liquor stores are places where people are going to abuse liquor and have easy access. >> this is too hot. the hottest topic in this country right now is gun safety. your family has been victimized. because of your family being victims, we are all victims. what is your feeling? >> it's not just the person that's killed, like my uncles. it's the whole family. so my father surv

environment that we're creating for ourselves and for our families. and this underlying culture of violence that leads to the kinds of tragedies that took place in newtown but also in columbine and aurora, and we can go through the list. we've almost become numb to the ticker telling us that some other community is confronting this kind of tragedy. and i think we have a responsibility as individuals and as citizens to push back on this. if this isn't the kind of culture we want, then we're going to have to say to companies, to our policymakers, this isn't -- you're going to have to stop. >> joe, i'm talking about playing nice, but i don't think that's going to work. >> and you know, the thing is, we have been focusing, of course, some on the gun lobby. >> right. >> but right after newtown, we were also talking about the responsibility of hollywood. >> right. >> and you want to talk about an industry that is completely blind to the -- you know, to their responsibility, bringing violence to culture, who was one of the most celebrated men sunday night at "the golden globes"? quentin tarantino.

regulated environment. so we take you quickly through a few studies that we've done that i think shows some very consistent patterns with firearms selzer accountability measures and the diversion of guns to criminals. the first one we published in 2009 was a study where we took the atf data from the 54 cities that had done comprehensive trace practices, had been in place in those cities. we looked at the state gun laws and we did a survey of state and local agencies to see what practices they engaged with respect to the oversight of licensed gun dealers and we did some regression analysis we control for a number of factors including other state done laws, gun ownership proxy's and the proximity to other states with weak gun laws. what we found is when you just looked at the states having strong gun dealer registrations by itself, it actually did not affect the diversion of guns to criminals. it was only having those in concert with a practicing those agencies of regulatory audit inspections and oversight of the dealers which i think it's quite interesting and important. we also found states
despite the fact they are working in this pernicious environment in washington. >> speaking of john boehner here, is another clip from inside obama's presidency with john boehner. >> dealing with the white house as i'm dealing with a bowl of -- like dealing with a bowl of jelge jello. they refuse to make tougher choices facing entitlement reform. that's the bottom line we are heading into the weekend with the best opportunity for preventing economic cataclysm on a global level from occurring it is now gone. there is month deal. >> it seems like barack obama and john boehner could do well to spend a couple hundred dollars and hire professional mediator. >> you know, it is probably something, as you know, much larger, much more proceed pound than that with implications, i'm now making a film about the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling that -- that will air in about a month. you know the scary thing about it, you guys, is the idea there may be government month by month as they pass resolutions and as this -- struggle continues. both sides really hunkering down, i think, for something t
